Wonderful, smart adaptation of Down We Go into something very new and very clever. I love the inversion of the basic DWG/OSR formula into being about defense, and the use of emotions as classes is so evocative! And it's a small detail, but I love the idea in the fiction that the minotaurs don't speak, but find other ways to communicate.
A Labyrinth Like Us
A downloadable game
The minotaur city of Ut sits in the center of an endless labyrinth. The labyrinth twists and turns, it folds and rearranges. And from its dark halls pour forth monsters, which tear and smash and destroy.
You are a minotaur in your district's Guard. You respond to the waves of beasts that wreck havoc and mayhem—repelling the danger and protecting the afflicted. You carry with you your hopes for Ut's future, and your fears for its present. Rally with your neighbors to protect one another. Carve a home in the labyrinth.
A Labyrinth Like Us is a 2-page roleplaying game in the OSR/sword dream tradition. It requires 3-5 players, including one Keeper, 2d20 and 2d6, and these rules.
A Labyrinth Like Us Features:
- Four Clasps, the ways that you support and protect your allies.
- Four Empowerments—Joy, Sorrow, Rage, Hope—which fuel your fight.
- Four Incursions and twenty Foes to challenge in the defense of your city.
